Halloween Trunk or Treating
Trunk or Treat in Pendleton SC
Every Halloween, our church sponsors "Trunk or Treating" in Pendleton, SC. The volunteers ask church members and friends to bring their cars to the church with their trunks decorated so the children can come by and get their treats out of the trunk. It is open to everyone and the children come in costume as do many of their parents. It seems to get bigger and better every year. There are really some creative people out there and it is amazing what they can come up with to make the trunk of a car look inviting.

What Exactly Is "Trunk or Treating"?
A Fun Alternative or Addition to Trick or Treating
"Trunk or Treating" has gained in popularity in recent years as more and more parents are afraid for their children to go door to door. It is sometimes called Halloween Tailgate which is a fun name, too.There are so many carnivals and Church events on Halloween night that our church has Trunk or Treating the Sunday before Halloween. This gives the children another day to wear their costumes. Our local High School had Trunk or Treat at the High School football game this year since it fell on a Friday. I heard that was lots of fun, too!
My trunk (a couple of years ago) - a big Smiley Face filled with candy - This Trunk or Treat Idea was fun
Smiley Face Trunk
A friend and I worked on this one and had a great time. I took some old black sheets that were left over from my son's college days and then used a big Smiley Face Monitor Cover. Do you remember those? When PCs first became popular, it was fun to decorate it and my sister sent me this one. I knew not to throw it away........it would come in handy someday!
2008 Trunk or Treat - We had a great time!
Idea for My Trunk or Treat
Last year I had asked the Squidoo Community to make suggestions for how I should decorate my trunk. My sister Joan had the best idea. She said that I should use "Zeke". "Zeke" is an old hillbilly "man" that our friends, the Quattlebaums, used to have sitting out front of their Antique Shop. Zeke has been around for a long time and there are lots of fun stories about him. We used to borrow him and put him on the front porch of my dad's house for our family Thanksgiving. Our neighbors borrowed them one year because their daughter had asked for a man for Christmas. They put Zeke under the tree with her name on him. He was at a Honey Do party given for our son with the name of his imaginary friend on him. So you see old Zeke is a part of Pendleton and Last year he was at Trunk or Treat.

Pendleton United Methodist Church does a great community service by providing Trunk or Treat on the square or at the church. All the children seemed to be having a great time and we sure did appreciate all the people who came with their decorated trunks and lots of candy. We had 20 trunks that were very clever and I think it is safe to say that A GOOD TIME WAS HAD BY ALL!
